Natural light pours through the salon's large front windows onto walls painted the deep blue-green of a tropical island. Amidst this relaxing ambiance, skilled stylists snip sharp scissor cuts and bedeck tresses with flattering highlights. Formaldehyde-free conditioning treatments are also available to reduce frizz for an easier morning routine. Guests may also request a gel manicure or receive a sun-kissed look without the UV rays via a spray-tan session.
Board-certified cardiologist Dr. Ariel Soffer, a graduate of the prestigious Cedars Sinai/UCLA residency program, former chief of medicine of the Hollywood Medical Center, former doctor for the Florida Panthers, clinical assistant professor at Nova Southeastern University, and chief medical expert for WPLG ABC Local 10 News leads Soffer Health, which offers multiple practices and specialized departments. One such department is the Soffer Vein Institute, where a diverse menu of vein treatments helps female and male patients to achieve comely legs. Dr. Soffer is so proficient in laser treatments for varicose veins that he has trained dozens of physicians to use his endovenous laser-ablation techniques to heat varicose veins directly and cause them to seal and disappear more quickly than rabbits at a magicians’ convention. A supporting team of dedicated vein experts complements Dr. Soffer's expertise. Dr. Oz even dubbed him as a world expert in veins during a recent interview. Additionally, Dr. Soffer uses traditional, ultrasound-guided, and foam-sclerotherapy treatments to eliminate unwanted varicose and spider veins.
All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda Salon Spa enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff—coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products—lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.

Dr. Mitchell Levy, a native New Yorker, chose to travel to Italy in order to attend The Medical University of Bologna, a school steeped in 900 years' worth of wisdom. After graduating in 1971, Dr. Levy returned to the United States, honing his skills during his residency and internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He eventually entered private practice, and it was there that he found a specific cause: breast cancer. Dr. Levy even helped in clinical studies for a new treatment device, the PEM Flex, which can examine cancer at the molecular level. He continues to help patients battle the disease at his current practice in Plantation. Although the fight against breast cancer remains his focus, Dr. Levy also administers cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, and body shaping through cryolipolysis.
